Right-handed starting pitcher -- Mario Sanchez, Harrisburg (23 games), Fresno (four games): His first dip into Triple-A was forgettable, but Sanchez spent most of the year as one of the top arms in the Eastern League. At age 24, the right-hander led the circuit with a 0.98 WHIP while posting a 10-5 record with a 2.85 ERA in 113 2/3 innings. Sanchez's 4.4 percent BB rate was 10th-lowest among the 169 pitchers in Double-A and Triple-A with at least 100 innings. He tossed 127 1/3 frames in all, blowing past his previous career high of 90 2/3.

"He's a strike-thrower, command-control type pitcher that keeps hitters off balance," Scialabba said. "He just attacks the strike zone. He comes right after you with a four-pitch mix and is not afraid and really just goes after hitters. He's able to pitch on both sides of the plate, keep the ball down and change speeds."

3.82 ERA / 1.12 WHIP in 22 starts / 127 innings across Harrisburg and Fresno in 2019 with 118Ks and 23BBs
